Autologous Engineered Skin Substitutes for Closure of Skin Wounds

2014-07-24 14:19:18 | BioPortfolio


This clinical trial tests the hypothesis that engineered human skin can reduce the requirements for harvesting of conventional skin autografts by providing more skin for grafting from the donor skin used to treat the wounds. In life-threatening burns (e.g., greater than 50% of the total body surface area), greater availability of skin may be definitive to patient survival, and may reduce scar formation at the donor site, and from use of widely-meshed skin autograft.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Food BEVERAGES that are used as nutritional substitutes for MILK.

Compounds used in food or in food preparation to replace dietary fats. They may be carbohydrate-, protein-, or fat-based. Fat substitutes are usually lower in calories but provide the same texture as fats.

A collective grouping for both naturally occurring and synthetic hormones, substitutes, and antagonists.

Synthetic or natural materials for the replacement of bones or bone tissue. They include hard tissue replacement polymers, natural coral, hydroxyapatite, beta-tricalcium phosphate, and various other biomaterials. The bone substitutes as inert materials can be incorporated into surrounding tissue or gradually replaced by original tissue.

Chemically-engineered oligonucleotides used to selectively inhibit expression of target genes through sequence-specific binding of corresponding microRNA (miRNA) sites.
